In this Group: Laudra, Josephine, Juliette Nee, Rosine Lossi, Sylvie Varthan
Laudra, age 33, is married with no children, but she provides for her niece. She is a member of the Source de Vie 1 group. Laudra owns a butcher shop that she has been operating for 3 years. She plans to use the loan to buy chicken and beef to stock her shop. Her business strategy is to reduce the price for customers who buy in large amounts. This practice encourages customers to return and to buy from her for large events. Laudra has received 4 previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner. She has a good repayment record. She wants to continue to grow her butcher shop and build a large boutique and counter. She would also like to have a large walk-in freezer one day. Laudra wishes for her niece to grow up and help her to run this business.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
